I decided to close my business in 2017 and spent the first few months making a detailed plan of execution. This included re-imagining stock into new products and carefully controlling the amount of new stock that I made. I liquidated inventory through my wholesale boutiques, through the One of a Kind Christmas show and finally through a blowout clearance sale during boxing week. 

The decision to close Headmistress was a big one and a scary one for me. I was overwhelmed by the response I received when I publicly announced the closure. People from every corner and experience of my life came out of the woodwork to wish me well in whatever was next. It blew me away and I treasure those connections and well-wishes.
